Teleflex Medical Tiemann Coude Intermittent Catheter 16Fr 16″ L, Sterile, Latex-free, Single-use, Orange
This ERU® Siliconized PVC Catheter has 2 staggered eyes. It has a solid tip and is color coded for size. It has a length of 40cm (16″) and is for single use. It is flexible with a curved tip and relatively stiffer shaft to help ease catheterization. An effective tiemann catheter needs a flexible curved tip but pliable shaft to help ease catheterization.
- It is especially helpful in negotiating difficult catheterizations.
- The notch on the catheter funnel is used to indicate the tip position.
- Rusch achieves this by modeling the tip separately and then joining it to the shaft.
